More Info:
This bike lives in Pune, Maharashtra, India. Sticker on frame sez 'Made in Indonesia'! Well made frame. Started off as a mod for adventure racing and hill climbing. Wanted to use a DA set of bearings (will switch to Aerozine 'ceramic' later maybe). Had to do some manipulation of the spacer washers, but it worked. Have a K Edge chain keeper (the MTB kind) ever since I dropped a chain on a bump (lame excuse) in a race and fell off the bike! The bottle cage (Elite Ciussi Gel) is heavier than most, but holds bottles securely on rough ground. Would swop it for carbon in a short hill climb race. And yeah, I take off the valve caps and check nuts! Headset Ritchey WCS, ditto bar ends. Hope to get a WCS seat post as well. I like Ritchey stuff! Well made, reliable (contrary to some stuff I've read), light and looks awesome!
